I've been rewatching the DBZ movies and I love the Gohan songs in the first and second one. As a song the first one when he's drunk is better, but the Piccolo love song is hilarious too.




Chichi giving up in the background. And that tiger, lmao

Piccolo is Yondu and Goku is Ego.

Good chapter, would have been great if not for the Roshi garbage.
Tenshinhan continuing to be worthless is great.

Three things that I got from the new chapter:

- Chi-Chi appearing in the manga to me is surprising even for a small moment. I don't think I have seen her in it much at all since one of the early DBS manga arcs.
- Goku showing up first before Vegeta is a nice switch up from him being last to appear.
- Trying to push a moment of sexual harassment from Master Roshi as comedy is crappy as ever. It was bad in the DBS anime and it still is here.

Really did not enjoy the chapter much outside of Krillin doing some good work. The Roshi stuff continues to be cringey as fuck.

I haven't caught up but it's disappointing if the manga is still doing shitty perv stuff with Roshi. There was an episode in the anime that made me uncomfortable af, but in the end I think he had "trained" to control his perv habits when fighting and I hoped it meant we wouldn't see shitty stuff from him. I hope it stays that way in the anime at least...

It feels like I'm watching/reading a very extended old school DBZ movie aka Garlic Jr saga but this time Goku returned and Vegeta came back from losing his mind in space.

Moro is just a very uncharismatic villain to me, he doesn't have "IT". He's like Bojack, I can deal with him for a quick movie but he can't carry a whole arc, god no.

Where's Frieza, shouldn't he be mad some asshole is fucking up his real estate property?

I was on board until Moro gave his goon energy. Also seeing these dire situations are laughable when there’s two other saiyans y’all won’t let participate but Yamcha and chio on the field..

The Roshi stuff specifically, or other stuff?
Like on paper characters like Krillin and what not actually getting some fights and action is exactly what I want to see more of

But in reality it just feels so whatever. There's no real danger for any of them. I've often brought up in here how the hypothetical of Goku's Instant Transmission easily trivializing everything, and lo and behold, Goku teleports in and casually crushes Krillin's opponent. And he can just go and do the same thing for the others.

It's like yea, this is Dragon Ball now, I know what I signed up for, this is absolutely nothing new, but it still bums me out every now and then. I still find enjoyment from this series (at least when it's animated), but yea...

I definitely think Goku showed up too early, but I'll wait and see what comes next, I don't think he'll just effortlessly beat all the henchmen or anything.

What a shit chapter.

Also Bulma seriously asking if Tenshinhan is able to insult someone. Girl please remember when you met him.

Imagine if Togashi wrote Dragon Ball Super from here on out
Jiren would have a psychological breakthrough about his ptsd during the tournament because he starts to connect with Krillin. He realizes joking around is the true strength he's been looking for and gives up the tournament. Without Jiren to help them, the pride troopers revert to their natural, brutal state and use their hidden powers of sucking out the life of their opponents, leaving them in an old and withered, but alive, state. Goku and the others lifespan is reduced drastically and after the tournament Goku lives out his final years in peace, finally becoming the father Goten never had. 17 still gets his boat.

It's the unfortunate reality of modern Dragon Ball storytelling... but also an indictment of Toyotaro, I think. There's a way to make this stuff more exciting, and I think we saw glimpses of the secondary characters doing more engaging stuff in the Super anime.

The focus on Goku and Vegeta is a big fucking problem and I don't think it's all that hard to fix. They just aren't interested in fixing it.
